Overall in good condition. The luxurious melding of honey-toned wood is paired with fine whiplash curves, making this a truly sculptural and sophisticated creation. The wood appears to have been sensitively refinished at some point in the history of the piece and has been beautifully preserved, presenting with some scattered, extremely minor surface scratches and abrasions, only visible upon very close inspection. Some discoloration on the surface of the piece, with a faint ring mark measuring 4 ¼ inches across, in keeping with age and gentle use. Some lose to veneer on the underside of the piece, not structurally detractive.
